Tahoe Douglas Rotary joins global literacy effort

Provided to the TribuneRotarian Leigh Mateas and Lindy Mateas read the book "Sharks" to Ms. Desrosier's second-grade class at Zephyr Cove Elementary School.

The Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club joined forces with Rotary clubs worldwide on Sept. 8 in support of global literacy by reading some favorite stories to children at Zephyr Cove Elementary School.

The story books were then donated to the school. A personal dictionary and thesaurus were also given to each child in Ms. Quilling’s third-grade class.

Rotary believes that literacy empowers people to lead healthy and successful lives and is essential for community development. Tahoe Douglas Rotary President Paula Peterson points out that not all of the local youth have ample opportunity to practice and develop their literacy skills.

Rotarians provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build peace and goodwill in the world.
